Donald Trump introduces new rule to help expand healthcare coverage options for small businesses

June 15, 2019

    Yesterday the Trump administration issued a new rule which, according to this story, is designed to help small businesses provide healthcare coverage options to their employees. Here is more:

The Trump administration on Thursday unveiled a rule aimed at expanding health insurance options for small businesses and others, the latest action stemming from President Trump’s health care executive order in 2017.

The White House framed the move as part of its efforts to expand health care choices for people now that efforts to repeal ObamaCare have come up short.

“This new rule gives businesses a better way to offer health insurance to employees and allows workers to select coverage that best fits their and their families’ needs,” Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said in a statement.

The rule allows employers to use tax-exempted funds, known as health reimbursement arrangements, to give to workers for purchasing coverage in the individual market.

Brian Blase, a White House health care adviser, told reporters the move would “particularly benefit smaller employers … by creating another option for financing worker health insurance coverage.”

  It sounds to me like expanding healthcare options is a good idea so I find it interesting that the Obama administration levied fines against these health reimbursement arrangements which basically made them null and void…unless of course the goal of Obamacare was actually limiting options in an attempt to eventually usher in single payer…

   It does not matter if this is going to help the people or not because since Donald Trump proposed this idea the Democrats are going to oppose it sight unseen and we can expect the lawsuits to follow.

    At least the man is trying… he still remains determined after all that is thrown at him.. That alone keeps me going. I would have long ago told the world to take a hike.

      Yeah, he has nobody helping him and yet he is still trying and we have to give him credit for that. I don’t think I would even run again if I had to put up with everything he has.

    Gosh, it sure seem like the demon-crafts aren’t “For We The People” at all!
    I think they’re mad … POTUS exposing them as unfit (being anti-Americans) and his closing the borders, interferes with them being paid by the drug cartels for ‘easy access’.
    Knowing many of them are DS Cabal workers, who illegally obtained their positions by rigged soros voting machines or fraud, might help explain their ‘enemy stance.’

      He really is exposing them and they are so filled with hatred that they cannot see it, hopefully this will get them defeated in 2020 or we could be in trouble.
